Warrior Mountain

A very bumpy, grueling road to Warrior Mountain

Warrior Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.433m (11,263ft) above the sea level, located in Clear Creek County, in the U.S. state of Colorado just south of Hwy 103 (Squaw Pass Road).

Located within the Arapaho National Forest, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicle required due its steepness. Starting from the Warrior Mountain Picnic Ground, on the Colorado State Highway 103, aka Squaw Pass Road, the road is 377.11 m (1,237.24 ft) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 34 meters. The average gradient is 9.01%. The summit hosts a radio tower and provides for grand views to the west of the Mount Evans Group, Chief Mountain to the east and on a clear day, parts of Denver are visible to the northeast. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season.
